Key PointsQuestionCan customized counseling by computer achieve weekly walking increases among low-income older adults to an extent similar to those achieved by trained human advisors? FindingsIn this cluster-randomized noninferiority trial of 245 adults (241 Latino, 98.4%) 50 years or older, the computer advisor intervention achieved significant 12-month increases in weekly walking levels that were no worse than those achieved by trained peer advisors. In addition, the increases were accompanied by similar improvements in relevant clinical risk factors. MeaningThe findings of this trial showing weekly walking increases attained in both the computer and human intervention groups of underserved older adults provide support for broadening the range of light-touch physical activity programs that can be offered to inactive older adults.
